An anomaly in the Caron pantheon, The Anarchist is a big thrashing mess of overcrowded ideas in a hideously, hideously overdesigned copper chalice that I could never, ever have anywhere in my possession.
That said, anarchy is the theme of the scent, and its greatest hits of brooding, fearless male (guaiac; cedar; sandalwood, mint; vetiver, mandarin, neroli, lime, basil; a fierce a prominent cinnamon note over citrus with a slew of brash and overwhelming aldehydes) does eventually, after some time, gradate to a warm, loveable hero – woody, aromatic; appeased.

What it graduated to made it my son’s favorite scent. He’s not happy it’s been discontinued. The bottle was all kinds of pretentious.
Oh Lordy it was foul.
But I am pleased it is/was someone’s signature.
What kind of impression did it give?
